About this walk

Green Lane Woods is a nice walk for dogs as it has clear paths, surrounding fields and man-made pond for the dogs to swim in! There is a bit of everything

You can park up to 4 cars in the free car park and walk straight into the woods. It's a fairly quiet woods, you can walk around the dye into fields with footpaths and at the back of the woods there is a man-made pond that my dogs like to cool off in!

The following information was provided by the Wildlife Trust:

Responsible dog walkers are very welcome to enjoy Green Lane Wood. It is a nature reserve and all dogs are required to be on lead. Owners are asked to pick up dog mess and take it home. To wildlife, dogs are predators, and disturbance is a real issue that can greatly impact on breeding success. Many birds for example nest on or close to the ground and if disturbed by free running dogs may abandon their nest. Even in the winter, when birds aren't breeding, they expend a lot of energy when flushed off the ground. At a time when food is scarce this can also impact on their survival.

There are some areas where dogs are permitted to run off lead in the new Country Park (the open space and field near the new Castlemead Development), but we ask for dogs to remain on lead at all times within the woodland. There is clear signage on the entrance gates to this effect.

Please be aware that these ponds have been installed as development mitigation for wildlife. If dogs are constantly running in and out and splashing about it is unlikely that wildlife habitat will develop.

We do ask all users to bag and bin or take home dog mess. We have a number of schools that use Green Lane Wood and in addition to dog mess being unpleasant it spreads disease. It also causes localised nutrient enrichment, which encourages growth of plants like nettle at the expense of wildflowers such as bluebell.
